The extraordinary colony of cats of Torre Argentina
Powered by Fabrizia Puca, arthistorian, journalist and museum didactics specialist, Micaela Carbonara, archaeologist and expert children tour guide and Sabina Carbonara, art and architecture historian
It was 1929 when the ancient ruins where Caesar was murdered were discovered at Largo di Torre Argentina. That same year the city’s stray cats started taking refuge in those same ruins. An expert guide will show you the place where these felines receive shelter and care from the city’s many volunteers, because this too is Rome. Have a look at Walt Disney’s movie “The Aristocats” in Italian, and listen to the fluent roman accent of Romeo, the animated film’s loveable Roman stray protagonist. He is the most respected cat of the city’s famous colony, and if you’ll be lucky he might come your way.
